From the Author:

Compelling American Conversations, our third conversation textbook for English language learners, builds on expanded social media and lessons learned over the last five years. This intermediate ESL book contains many suggested activities from readers of our first book: Compelling Conversations: Questions and Quotations on Timeless Topics.
Compelling American Conversations, an intermediate American English textbook, will help students feel more comfortable in English and improve fluency.

The many conversation activities will help English students to:

  • Ask clear, simple questions
  • Listen to each other and respond to questions
  • Become more comfortable speaking English
  • Use common conversation starters
  • Learn how to continue conversations on many current and timeless topics
  • Discover and use new vocabulary words
  • Memorize some American sayings and some old proverbs
  • Discuss ideas by studying classical and modern quotations
  • Express your opinions and support your statements
  • Find and share Internet resources about living in the United States
  • Speak English with greater confidence
  • Enjoy learning about your classmates and yourself

Compelling American Conversations explicitly emphasizes American language, culture and values.  The primary audience is newcomers to the United States, and recent and not-so-recent immigrants who may be studying at an American high school, adult school, community college or university.  We strongly believe that all immigrants deserve a quality education that allows them to express themselves, develop their English language skills, and deepen their critical thinking skills."

We hope that with Compelling American Conversations, American English language learners will ask more questions, speak more in their workplaces, and create their own compelling conversations -  inside and outside English classes.  

- Eric Roth, Toni Aberson, and Hal Bogotch,
Co-authors, Compelling American Conversations

From the Inside Flap:

"Compelling American Conversations is a great book for students to improve their conversational skills. The exercises also help to improve the "on-the-spot" thinking skills students need to become fluent English speakers. I recommend this book as a study aid for those who wish to improve their IELTS speaking score."
~ James Hutzell, Lecturer, USC Language Academy

"Conversational English proficiency can only be acquired by engaging in authentic English
conversations. The academic approach used all too frequently in conventional ESL classrooms consistently fails at helping English learners become fluent English speakers. Compelling American Conversations fills the gap left by inadequate curricula by offering engaging topics and prompts that become the starting point for thoughtful and meaningful conversations. I highly recommend it."
~ Nathan D. Crandall, M.A., Founder, The Fluency Coach
